Laura Armstrong

Alternative Therapy Healer


Being able to heal our bodies and keep them in balance to promote a healthy and active lifestyle has always been an essential part of a happy, fulfilling life to Laura Armstrong, Owner and principal practitioner at Essence Body Therapy.
Laura’s journey in healing began after training and teaching in the martial arts for over 20 years.  Her primary interest came into being by wanting to help heal students that had gotten injured or hurt in training at some point in time and bring them back to a state where they could continue to practice in a healthy way.

In October of 2008, Laura became a Certified Practitioner in the art of Indian Head Massage and once completed the teacher training, became the first Certified Instructor under Debbie Boehlen, Founder and Owner of the Canadian Centre of Indian Head Massage. Her journey continued by then becoming a Certified Practitioner followed by her Certification as an instructor in Rejuvenating Head Massage in December of 2013 once again under Chief Instructor Debbie Boehlen. Laura is a Certified Access Bars® Facilitator in January of 2016. She also offers sessions in Energetic Facelift, Correcting Vision and other sessions under Access Consciousness. The Bars have made tremendous changes and leaps forward in Laura’s life and she looks forward to offering the same amazing changes to others.

She also studies and continues to advance and enhance her skills through training in other modalities.  Her goal is to bring the client’s energy, attitude and physical state back into balance through energy and bodywork that focuses on healing the body on several levels: physical, mental, spiritual.  The mind/body/spirit connection is an important part of sessions offered as they allow the client to let stress and other worries including physical ailments or issues melt away, letting everything come back into balance.

Laura’s open and enthusiastic teaching style allows students to learn at their own pace while accumulating extensive knowledge of Reiki treatment, Indian Head Massage, and Rejuvenating Face Massage as well as the many different aspects that each offers.  She is certified by the Canadian Reiki Association and the Karuna® Reiki International Centre for Reiki Training.  Laura is also a Certified Instructor in Indian Head Massage as well as Rejuvenating Head Massage and offers treatment in Reiki, Indian Head Massage, Rejuvenating Face Massage, Access Bars®, Energetic Facelift and Correcting Vision at her clinic in Toronto, Canada.
